French actor Gérard Depardieu has been accused of rape and sexual assault. A 22-year-old unnamed woman filed a criminal complaint against the 69-year-old, claiming the attack occurred on August 7th and then August 13th again, according to reports.
Depardieu denies the allegations. "I regret the public nature of this process which poses a major prejudice to Gerard Depardieu, whose innocence I am convinced will be recognized," Depardieu’s lawyer Herve Termime told AFP News.
The alleged attacks happened in his home. The unnamed woman is an actress and dancer he knows, and he was allegedly giving her professional advice.
